About the Movie
On November 29, 2002, one year after the passing of George Harrison, Olivia Harrison and longtime friend Eric Clapton organised a performance tribute in his honour. His closest friends gathered at London’s Royal Albert Hall to celebrate his life in the only way they knew how – by playing his music. The momentous evening featured George's songs, and music he loved, performed by a lineup that included Clapton, Jools Holland, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Monty Python, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Ravi and Anoushka Shankar, Ringo Starr, Dhani Harrison and many more. Directed by David Leland (Wish You Were Here, HBO’s Band Of Brothers and the Traveling Wilburys video “Handle With Care”), the Grammy® Award-winning CONCERT FOR GEORGE captures stunning renditions of some of the most significant music of the 20th century, including “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” (featuring Clapton on guitar, McCartney on piano and Starr on drums), “Taxman” (performed by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and “The Inner Light” (covered by Jeff Lynne and Anoushka Shankar). Lynne, Harrison’s longtime friend and collaborator, produced the audio elements of the concert, while Clapton oversaw the entire proceedings as Musical Director.

Nice- A Tribute to a Departed Legend
For all of you that are fans of George Harrison and his music, the Concert for George is here. I think it's great that this concert is now available because anyone can buy this and see how many of George's old musician friends gathered together to play as a way of honoring the man. This has many celebrities from Eric Clapton to Billy Preston to Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and even Tom Petty. I haven't seen the concert before, but it looks like something anyone should see. It's that good because the concert movie is for anyone that wants to hear a music legend's songs performed in public a year after his death. Whether you like the Beatles or just George Harrison in his solo career, there is a variety of songs from all stages of his career being performed. You'll like the concert a lot when you start watching it.
Why so much
I give it four stars because it costs so dang much. Other than that great movie
